LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY | tips | Photoshop post processing workflow

Yes I use photoshop, most photographers do these days. Is it cheating, no….if you would like to hear my justification here it is: Do you use photoshop?

How much Photoshop do I use? Well I’ll let you decide, here’s a video starting from the output of my RAW file, gradually adding each layer to the finished image. Note the starting point is mostly straight out of the camera, RAW files always lack contrast when compared to jpegs. Why is this? Well jpegs are actually post processed by your camera!

I appreciate that you’re willing to show people that you use photoshop. I obviously knew you had great compositions, but I never realised the punch you pulled out through photoshop. This makes me want to buy a laptop and do one of your photoshop courses!
fun fact: your my 9th most visited webpage. 8th, and only other photography related page, is Zoriah.

Hi Josie,
Only 9th 🙂 Well you should have said hello by now, I like to know that people are actually coming to my site. Yep I love Photoshop, it can work wonders as long as your composition and exposure are good (nothing can fix that up). Would love to see you on a course.

I’m happy to come second to Zoriah, great photos!
Cheers
Lee
